This is how ELT locating satellites work (when not relaying the newer GPS data bursts).  Several on another list I watch suggested this pretty early on and I guess INMARSAT got the message.  I'd be curious to know if AFRCC pointed INMARSAT in that direction.

Really shows the value of precise and stable time references!

According to a report on FOX, INMARSAT was able to determine the Malasia
Air followed the southern traectory from the Dopplar of the pings. They
verified their model by tracking other planes.
